Ignoring Thai League, Nguyen Tuan Anh sets to play in La Liga?

Ignoring Thai League, Nguyen Tuan Anh sets to play in La Liga?

Instead of aiming to play in Thailand as many teammates, Hoang Anh Gia Lai midfielder Nguyen Tuan Anh will train in Spain in 2020.

According to Vietnamese media, Spanish club Deportivo Alaves invited Nguyen Tuan Anh to come to Spain to train with the team. Club officials said that they made an official offer after seeing him play in the World Cup qualification round.

They evaluated Nguyen Tuan Anh as one of the best midfielders in Southeast Asia at the moment. Moreover, Alaves also wants to have a player to replace injured midfielder Tomas Pina in the winter transfer window.

In the case of Nguyen Tuan Anh, the Vietnamese player is ready to play in La Liga, one of the best leagues in the world. However, his current club told him that they need to have more time before deciding to let him go or not.

In the past, "Ronaldinho of Vietnam" suffered from many injuries, and he just played regularly in the last season. Furthermore, he is also one of the key players in Hoang Anh Gia Lai's plan next season.

If Nguyen Tuan Anh moves to Alaves, it will be the second time he plays football abroad. In 2016, he used to play for Yokohama FC on loan from Hoang Anh Gia Lai.

However, he rarely had a chance to play in official matches. As a result, the Vietnamese club fears that Nguyen Tuan Anh can bury his career in Alaves as he did in Japan before.
